Ill wait till I hear from forum members hear that get theirs done. I had a Stillen Cat-back Exhaust on my Infiniti, the one thing I loved about the exhaust was that at Highway cruising I could get the exhaust coming out in just the right node (or anti-node) that caused a deep reverberating sound that I loved. So if a forum member mentions that sound effect, that will be the one I buy. Excelleration noise wont matter to much too me, b/c in that case all that I will be hearing is the wine of the Supercharger.

I'm hoping SLP comes out with a Loudmouth for the Camaro. I've always been a fan of SLP performance parts and the Loudmouths sounded great on the F-body's.

Depending on the look of the exhaust tips and the price, I'll choose either slp loudmouth or just muffler delete. The mustang bone stock does sound pretty good. The GTO actually sounded very nice bone stock. The mustang sounded really good with no muffler. My corvette scares the neighbors.

Now THIS could sound like a great option! I think this is quite the possibility...

None. Stock exhausts these days tend to flow quite well. Deal with the other bottlenecks first if you're going for power. Long tubes, HFCs or straight pipes, and then catback. Granted sometimes, like with the GTOs, long tubes and catless midpipes sounded like shit with the stock catback so you pretty much had to get something done to the exhaust.

It is my knowledge...and experience...that a freer flowing exhaust most CERTAINLY will give a performance boost. Toss in headers, high flow cats (or none), and pure pipes and that exhaust will give a gain....pretty much over any stock exhaust. SLP Loudmouth and y-pipe. I had it. I used it. I saw the gain. Yes...there was a performance benefit.

There is no doubt in my mind that there will be a benefit from a chambered exhaust.
Wait.....hold on.....

I believe that the catback exhaust you would order is put on by the dealer to get around the federal requirement limts. Also I believe that having the the dealership install the exhaust system keeps from voiding the warrenty.

Sorry, but every speed equipment manufacturer is going to say "dyno proven" and what not. Even the Turbonator. I'm just saying that I know a lot of stock catback cars that make big power, most of which being LSx cars. It makes little sense to put a freer flowing catback behind stock cats because the exhaust will only flow as well as the tightest bottleneck, which they are.

More catbacks are disproven than proven on third party dynos.


Granted, I'm talking modern technology. The 4th Gen F-body exhaust was designed 16 years ago, and modified slightly 10 years ago.

My desired set-up:

1. Kooks LT headers w/catted x-pipe
2. Corsa cat-back or axle back.

If i get one I am going with corsa for sure. They are a little expensive, but you get what you pay for. I looked on youtube at different exhausts on corvettes, mustangs and challengers and corsa always sounded the loudest and meanest and had no drone.
